This batch won the World Championship down in Texas (I didn't win but I did steal the recipe.

DAMN CHILI (cause when you take a bit all you can say is DAMN!)

1 14 ½ oz can Beef Broth

½ teaspoon Mexican Oregano

Directions:
Gray 2 pounds of ¼ cubed chuck roast (or chili grind).
Add:
1 14-1/2 oz. Can 1 8-oz. Can Tomato Sauce
1 Cube – Beef Bouillon
1 Cube – Chicken Bouillon
Float 1 Jalapeno Pepper and 1 Serrano Pepper.

Bring to a boil and add:
2 tsp. –Onion Powder
1 tsp. – Garlic Powder
1 Tbls. – Light Chili Powder
2 Tbls. - Hot Chili Powder

Cut back heat and simmer for about an hour, then add:

Both of these are very good. No beans no filler, no stray vegetables (that is stew not chili). Beware, after eating some people have been known to have their colons try to commit suicide.

I gotta agree with nascar. My momma is from Sweetwater, TX and she would pimp slap the taste out of your mouth if you put beans in chili. Dad went to the World Championship in Terlingua, TX (town motto: 50 miles from nowhere). The rules there say nothing in chili but meat and sauce, anything else gets you a DQ.

Now for you folks that want to put in beans, veggies, guacamole, etc. I don't care to each his own, Wrecker's was great.

But some people add way to much and turn it into stew.

B) Any one that is interested the Terlingua chili cook off is this comming weekend..10-31 ? thru 11-06......It is one hell of a party.....and chili cook off.hahaha :lol: :lol: This is a C.A.S.I (chili appreciation society international) cook off.....

This is award winning chili. It won 1st place in Terlingua one year. It includes chocolate and its a very hot hot hot chili. The beans are optional.
Heres the real trick to ANY chili, award winning or not. Once you make your chili, let it cool to room temperature, and then put it in the fridge till the next day. There isnt a soul alive that doesnt know chili is better the next day. It really makes a huge difference. So make this recipe a day ahead of time and give all those flavors time to marry.
(I give you recipe, you give me picture?:P )

Part 1:
4 pounds steak (round or sirloin, not ground)
6 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
3 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoon meat tenderizer
2 medium white onion, chopped
2 bell pepper, chopped

Part 2:
2 - 10-oz. can chicken broth
2 - 10 oz. beef broth
2 - 6 oz. tomato paste
3 - 28 oz. can whole tomatoes, peeled, chopped, and drained
10 cloves garlic, finely chopped (or garlic powder)
10 tablespoons Gebhardt chili powder
8 tablespoons California chili powder
4 tablespoon medium hot New Mexico chili powder
4 tablespoon ground pasilla chili
4 tablespoon ground cumin
4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon white pepper
2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
4 whole jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
2 teaspoon ground oregano
2 teaspoon garlic powder
4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate

Optional:
2 - 27-oz. can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 20-oz. can red beans, rinsed and drained
1 - 15-oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained

Part 1: Cut meat into 1/4" to 1/2" cubes. Cook each pound of meat separately this way: In large cooking pot, heat 1 teaspoon cooking oil, stir in 1 pound cubed meat, then sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt, 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/2 teaspoon meat tenderizer. When meat is lightly browned, drain off all fat. Saute chopped onions and chopped bell pepper.

Part 2: Return all the meat, the onions, and the bell pepper to the pot and add all of the Part 2 ingredients, and beans if desired. Stir well to combine. Simmer uncovered over low heat for 3 hours, adding an additional 1 can chicken broth if necessary. Do not allow to boil. Store in refrigerator overnight, reheat for 2 hours the next day, and eat (chili is always better after it sits overnight in the refrigerator).
This recipe makes 8 quarts (approx. 16 pounds).

Just found this post, I've lived in the North, and the South. It seems to me that folks in the North like beans in Chili, while us normal people in the South realize this would be like eating yellow snow freakin
It would be great to have an official HCG Chili cook-off though, what a great idea!

here is a good way to grade the chili

1) the look, texture, smell of chili

2) taste including the heat, lack of heat, or the sneak up of heat

3) gas factor :unsure: we can forget about that one.

I make chili both ways with or with out beans.

If ya wanna add a bit of a unique, but really good flavor, one of my secret ingredients is a shot of bourbon (in the chili - not the chef - at least not right away).

Yep, temp this morning was 43 degrees when I left the house...might need to make up some chili this weekend! woot

Sorry guys! I didn't realize this took off like it did. Well My wife made the chili yesterday and WOW WOW WOW was it freaking good. Yes we yankees put beans in our chili but that’s how I like it. This shit was so freaking good I have been eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Thanks for everyone’s help. As far as which recipe I used, she came up with her own after looking at a few. Thanks again now I have to go eat more chili!

Epicwoman,

I am going to try this recipe this coming weekend.
I have a couple of questions:

Do you use Pinto beans or Kidney beans? I've never used Pinto beans in Chile but I have both types.

Do you discard the seeds from the jalepeno pepper before chopping with the rest of the red chiles?

Thanks for posting this recipe, it sounds great!
